(FOX 2) - It's a lobster lovers dream at Tom's Oyster Bar in downtown Royal Oak. This Valentine's Day, for just over a week, between Feb. 10-19, Tom's Oyster Bar will offer an assortment of lobster features.
Chef Jamal Alashmaly joined us on The Nine to tell us more about the features - along with some features at their sister restaurant next door, Ale Mary's. You can get his lobster carbonara recipe below.
Garlic 1 oz
Shallots 1 oz
White Wine 1/3 cup
Bacon Lardons 1.5 oz
Lobster (3oz) 1 pacl
Cream 4 oz
Linguini Pasta (7oz) 1 pack
Asiago Cheese 2 oz
Peas 2 oz
Step 1 Heat a sauté pan on the burner and add cooking oil. Add the Garlic, Shallots and Leeks, and begin to sweat, DO NOT BROWN.
Step 2 Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Place the garlic toast into the oven, and heat until melted and browned.
Step 3 Add the Bacon and Lobster and warm through. Add the cream and Pasta, and begin to reduce.
Step 4 Add the peas and the cheese and melt the cheese into the sauce.
Step 5 Plate in the larger shallow bowl. Pile the pasta nice and high in the center of the bowl, neatly. Put the toast in top pointing from the center out.
